Intakes are improved after calving from what we were doing in our previous program. Fresh pen milk is up and Hydro-Lac is the only thing we are doing that is different.

- John Warren

Cattle fill out very nicely before we market them. I’ve used Hydro-Lac for eight years. We feed one pound per head daily for two consecutive days before we market our cattle. After further discussion with my Form-A-Feed representative, I will consider using Hydro-Lac during times of heat stress too.
